What Is a promissory note form?

Edited by Ben Jacklin

A promissory note (not to be confused with a loan agreement) is a legal document which contains a promise to pay a specified sum of money to a specified person at a specified time.

To make it simple, a promissory note is a debt instrument that allows companies or individuals to obtain financing from a source other than a bank. A standard promissory note is generally held by the party to whom the money is owed.

Tips for making a promissory note in the PDF format

1. Calculating the Amount of the Debt

First, you should calculate the amount of money that the borrower owes you. It may include not only the amount of money owed but also any additional interest and penalty payments. Consider whether you want to receive the payment in US dollars or some other currency.

2. Talking with the Borrower about Repayment Options

Before drafting the promissory note, discuss the terms of the loan with your borrower. You can give them the option to pay off the debt in instalments. Alternatively, you can opt to have the loan repaid in full. Additionally, you should discuss and set a date for the final payment which is acceptable to both of you.
